    Oh Mrs. Webster you were such a grand lady! One of the kindness, caring and most helpful person I have ever known. You were always thinking of others. You treated me and my children so well. I so enjoyed our talks of late. Going to the cemetry and visiting people this past May. I will miss you so much — as I know Mark and Lynne and Nickolas will. I will rejoice for you that you are with Mr. Webster again. Blessings to all your children and their families, Leigh, Sandy and Chuck.

  4. Jeanne & Larry Pierce says:

    Sandy, Leigh & Chuck,
    I (Jeanne) just talked to Sandy, but wanted to let you all know how very personally Larry and I feel your loss. Your mom was a very sweet and loving person that has left so many wonderful memories with us from so many years. She was one of my “moms”. There is no doubt of the huge empty space she has left in all of our hearts in her passing. I am just thankful that God chose to take her home so peacefully. Love to you all and our very deepest sympathy.

  5. Leanne & Donald Woodland says:

    Leigh, so sorry to hear about your mom. You’re in my thoughts.

    Chuck, Sandy & Leigh,

    Skip & I were shocked to learn of Florence’s death. We loved her like family and were honored when she would come to celebrate Christmas Eve with us. While Florence was a quiet, gentle soul, she was really quite funny when we engaged her in conversation. While we will miss her kind spirit, we feel comforted that she occupies a most honored place in Heaven.

    Leigh, Sandy and Chuck,
    Please accept my deepest condolences for the passing of Florence. I’m sad that you have lost your mom but happy that when it was her time to go there was so much peace for her. I wrote in a guest book on the 17th but as you can see not this one. Florence was a great woman and so personable and gracious. I will miss her.
    Love you guys and if you need anything I’m here in La.
